Wood-Plastic Composite & Plastic Lumber - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for wood-plastic composite (WPC) and plastic lumber is forecast to advance 6.9 percent per year to $5.9 billion in 2020. Continuing growth in construction expenditures -- particularly in the residential market -- will spur gains. WPC and plastic lumber have taken market share from wood lumber in such applications as decking and molding and trim due to their favorable aesthetic and performance properties and will see increasing use in these segments. Furthermore, consumers who opted for less costly wood products, especially during the Great Recession and its aftermath, will increasingly choose WPC and plastic materials going forward as economic conditions improve.
